The Duneland School
Board will hold an emergency session at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 20 using
virtual methods, per guidance from the Indiana Public Access Counselor.
The purpose for the
meeting is to approve two resolutions. The first resolution is to approve
pay for DSC employees during the closure, and the second resolution is to
establish expectations for employees working from home during the closure.
Per Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines on preventing the spread of
the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the meeting will be open to the public, but
only 10 people will be admitted in-person at the Administration Center, 601
W. Morgan Avenue, Chesterton. Only Superintendent Dr. Chip Pettit and one
Board member will be physically in attendance while the other Board members
can call in or join virtually, per new guidance on public meetings handed
down by Governor Eric Holcomb in an executive order Tuesday.
